Caspian Flotilla will receive new boats

According to the "Military Industrial Courier", with reference to the press service of the Southern Military District, Caspian sailors flotilla started the development of two new raid boats of integrated emergency and rescue support of project 23040, which were built by OJSC Nizhegorodsky Ship Ship Plant.

It is noted that the crews will have to master the new joystick control system of the boat, which facilitates the work on its retention and accurate maneuvering in difficult weather conditions. Training takes place under the control of the factory team.

In addition, a series of training sessions is planned for the development of a small-sized remote-controlled uninhabited underwater vehicle, a thermal imaging system for night vision and a towed sonar. Also, the sailors will learn the latest equipment to perform search, survey and diving work at depths up to 60 meters and swell up to 3 points.

23040 boats can be used for rescue operations at sea and on the river. In particular, they have installed equipment for supplying power to an emergency vessel or object. They can also be used for search and rescue, diving, environmental, fire and other types of work. The installed equipment allows you to extinguish fires on ships and ships, coastal and floating objects up to 30 meters.

In total, the search and rescue service of the Caspian Flotilla will receive three boats of the 23040 project, the state tests of which will take place from June to November of the 2014 year.

    We urgently need to build up and at the same time accelerate the construction of the fleet of the ocean zone (thereby supporting the image of a superpower), but at the same time we need to build a fleet of near and middle zones at an accelerated pace to protect our own territory. We need to focus on ships (submarine and surface), which will carry on board the most accurate missile weapons. Indeed, in the event of a conflict, a squadron of missile cruisers can very much ruffle a vaunted carrier fleet of a potential enemy (to say the least).

      To be honest, the image is certainly cool, but it’s like not tearing up, because the fleet of the ocean zone is an expensive pleasure. I believe that the emphasis should be placed on the submarine fleet, because in the event of a major war its survival and utility will be much higher. Expensive ships must be built on the basis of doctrine and plans in case of hostilities, and not because they look cool. Now we are building and purchasing ships for the local BDK wars, helicopter carriers, and apl. Amers have a different military doctrine and scope. Since their territory is far from the zones where they are going to fight, they build aircraft carriers to operate where they cannot get out of their territory. And most likely in the case of a global Arctic fox, their aircraft carriers will be sunk in the shortest possible time and most likely tact. yao. During World War II, the Germans had 2 superlinkers - Tirpitz and Bismarck, who did nothing sensible, but were sunk by aircraft and pl. As the saying goes, if you want to ruin a small country, give her a cruiser. I understand that there are many lovers of large ships, especially since these ships are breathtaking, and they will give me minuses, but I would like specifics then - how these people describe the scope and necessity of building such ships for our country.

    Pts is good. The strengthening of the military-economic presence in the Caspian is clearly visible.
    Sharpening for rescue and underwater work is not casual.

    Well, the joystick in our time does not scare anyone! laughing On the contrary, it’s easier to get used to!

        In vain irony. It’s quite an excellent, versatile boat with the possibility of a raid minesweeper with a controlled, underwater vehicle, suitable for anti-sabotage work. So, in addition to purely economic, non-heroic work, it can also carry out combat missions to protect the water area. They really need a lot for all bases. Here and project 23370 are also from such small, but remote, without which ocean ships in their own kerdyk base.

    such a boat is needed at the Black Sea Fleet. And more than one. The PZhK (fire boat) armed with the Black Sea Fleet was built right after the war and it’s not occupied for years. Therefore, I think it is necessary to increase the construction of such ships as soon as possible. hi

      And so there are almost a dozen of them under construction, these are only the first swallows. If interested, take a look at SUN.

    The project 23040 cannot be called a boat. I haven’t seen any official documents, but it’s more a yacht than a boat. Or maybe they disguise it so ... that would circumvent the restrictions. Obviously, a frigate cannot be called a boat.

    Submarines of the Akula project were commissioned from 1981 to 1988, almost one boat a year!
    And with the "Boreas" for six years, not a single boat has really been accepted into the Navy, everything is being tested ...
    Here are just "boats", a piece a year, we manage to give the fleet, a sad demonstration of the industrial impotence of military shipbuilding.
    So whoever was a strong skeptic about the expediency of the Mistrals should reduce the ardor: two LARGE ships in almost 3 years, we ourselves cannot master this.

      they wouldn’t have mastered either. in fact, in three years they made one mistral and the second did in Russia, it was cooperation half did at the Baltic factory

    In the Caspian, such boats are just right. Cheap and cheerful. Neighbors are not particularly stressed, but at the same time they are able to demonstrate strength if anything. It is a very reasonable ratio of price and benefit.
